Packinghouse's tasting room and brewery is located across the street from a regional airport.

It's a fairly small space. There were a few seating area with couple of monitors on the wall. Since I was in the area and is always looking for new places to try out, I came here. I tried several tasters. I thought their beers were good.

I'd check it out if you are in the area. Nice small comfortable experience.

There are a couple of guys who work the taproom who seem to really enjoy making people who ask questions feel dumb. That said, I think the beer is worth it, and this brewery is so convenient for me, I'll keep going.

I learned something which I didn't know; Riverside has an airport. Right along Central Ave, and across the street is Packinghouse Brewing. The tasting room itself is small side, but it could have also been the rectangular configuration which made one side of the room closer to the other. Just a few people in the room on a Sunday, but it was still pleasing to sit down a have a few beers. With six beers of house beer on-tap, including an Irish Red, a cream stout, and the same cream stout with almonds and coconut. I tried the two stouts, both swimming in the middle of the pack, which in the land of craft beer is agreeable. Expect a comfortable experience at Packinghouse; don't expect to have your palate blown away.

I recently visited Packinghouse Brewing as I was in the area for business. The tasting room is fairly small with the actual brewery in the back section of the building where you can't see it. There are some tables and a few bar seats where you can sit. They only had 5 of their beers on tap with some of their beers also available to go in bomber format. Prices were great with $1 tasters and pints around $4 or so. The service was pretty good with the guy that helped me. The beer seemed fresh and was served in proper glasware. I would recommend a stop in here if you are in the area.
